    Ich will inhaltlich nichts sagen, das gibt es schon in englischen Rezensionen oder auf der Artikelseite Nur kurz ein paar Bemerkungen Das Englisch ist meist gut verst ndlich Die Kindle Version ist in Ordnung und das Nachschlagen der Vokabeln klappt gut Spannung ist gut und es gibt die ein oder andere berraschende Wendung Die Aufl sung der Spannung ist etwas prompt und zu kurz Da h tte man mehr raus machen k nnen.Edit Nachtrag Das ist die Rezension, die ich jetzt auch beim 2 und 3 Teil als Bewertung f r die Gesamtreihe geschrieben habe Ich lasse hier allerdings meine erste Bewertung stehen Die Rezension habe ich bei den anderen Teilen Chronischer Mangel genannt.Ich habe die komplette Reihe zu Ende gelesen und schreibe zus tzlich zu meiner 1 Rezension noch 2 Rezensionen zum 2 und 3 Teil Ich glaube, dass man den 4 und 5 Teil ohnehin liest und vielleicht auch lesen sollte , wenn man schon so weit gekommen ist.Der Autor begeht leider in eigentlich jedem Buch den gleichen Fehler meiner Meinung nach Er baut Spannung in einer sch nen Szene n auf Statt dem zu erwartenden Knall eines B llers folgt jedoch ein Verpuffen der Luft wie bei einem vollen Luftballon ohne Knoten Sicherlich ist dieser Vergleich leicht bertrieben, trifft aber den Kern Konkret u ert sich das meistens daran, dass der Autor die wichtigen kulminierenden Situationen nicht mehr ausf hrlich, ausgeschm ckt beschreibt Im Gegenteil ich habe sogar manchmal das Gef hl gehabt er w rde dort weniger beschreibend als sonst schreiben Bei einem Band war die Aufregung was jetzt passieren wird sehr gro und gut Und was macht der Autor Er schreibt als n chstes Kapitel wo schon alles gel st ist und erz hlt dort ber die Charaktere was r ckblickend ganz grob geschehen ist auch bei der L sung hat es sich der Autor meiner Meinung nach zu einfach gemacht.Das Buch Reihe ist jedoch nett zu lesen gewesen und kann ich ansonsten auch empfehlen Ich habe jetzt angefangen Codex Alera abgeschlossene Reihe finde ich ganz wichtig und das gef llt mir bisher sehr gut Schon im glaube 3 Kapitel standen mir die Haare mehr zu Berge als hier teilweise in einem ganzen Band wobei man das im Nachhinein vermutlich eher vergisst Wenn jemand andere gute Reihen in dem Bereich der Fantasiewelten kennt, gerne als Kommentar unter meine Rezension sollte aber Englisch sein

    This book is as good or even better than Harry Potter and it also transports the reader into another world.Herbie Brennan writes amazingly and the story is supberb.One does not want it to end and lose all the new friends from the fairy realm.Fairies of the Light and Fairies of the Dark are portraited in an interesting human way and amazing ideas and parallels are being drawn Fortunately there is a 2nd The Purple Emperor 3rd book Ruler of the Realm to heigthen the reading pleasure.

    I enjoyed this book I liked Henry who is a very ordinary 14 yr old boy no heroics or achieving great feats from this kid He is a nice but ordinary boy who has stumbled into an adventure and plods along like a sidekick You may think that sounds like the book will be boring but it isn t because the others around Henry are the active or heroic ones Henry as one of the main character just allows us to see the story from the point of view of an ordinary person shrug I found it a refreshingly different style.The other characters who star in the book are great I like paranoid Mr Fogarty, the old man who has hired Henry to do odd jobs aroud his place and rambles on about the CIA, UFOs and fairies Pyrgus is a Fae prince who fancies himself the pauper and dresses like his subjects to blend in and get into mischief His sister Blue is quite happily a princess but also pulls the pauper act when it suits her and it suits her whenever she s being nosywhich is often.I also liked the world building and the way that things from our world and the Fae realm interacting are explainedlike why Fae sightings are often associated with certain plants and the truth behind why certain odd things happen in our world Can t give better details they d be spoilers I see from the reviews that there is a lot of controversy about whether this book is appropriate for young readers It seems Henry s mother s lesbian relationship is the main sticking point While I will admit that, at least in book 1, that storyline is extraneous, I can see how it might be useful or relevant in a future book The lesbianism isn t even lightly graphic it s just mentioned and then Henry, his sister and his school friend in different conversations discuss it a bit and try with their young minds to figure it out can a woman who is married to a man also like women Is a lesbian affair a phase females go through Is it still cheating The questions and issues they struggle with I think would resonate with kids and adults too I will warn that as the child of divorced parents, I found Henry s experience quite realistic and familiar and it might be like a trigger for some kids but other than that, I don t see the issue with it at all.Maybe because I can t believe that in a book with extremely graphic details about dark magic rituals and a book whose cover may be made from babies skin, a lesbian affair lightly hinted at is the issue some parents are having I don t have young teen kids but I wouldn t buy this book for my godchildren who are that age group However kids 15 or up depending on what they ve been exposed to might be okaythough I did still find myself skimming over the magic rituals which were a bit dark for me I ve read of people who think the PG magic in Harry Potter was promoting witchcraft their heads might explode if they read this book BUT even those bits aren t large parts of the book and the rest of it is certainly worth reading if you can stomach the cons.

    Faeries and Demons and Kittens Oh My My husband is NOT a reader, so it amuses me on those rare occasions when he calls me during the day insisting that I look up a book More importantly To date, he has yet to let me down.His latest find was Faerie Wars which again congrats to him is a winner, and a very promising start to the Faerie War Chronicles It has solid character development, a fluid plot, and several twists, sure to keep even skeptical readers engrossed and seeking the final answer The book was well written, and sucessfully from several variaying perspectives, each eventually emerging into one main plot line.First you have Henryaverage boy, average life, mundane existencethat is of course until he tries to rescue a butterfly from a cats mouth Turns out the butterfly was less insect and little boy with wings who has a thing for potato chips.Second you have Pyrgusthe Not quiet a butterfly who SURPRISE is actually the crown prince of the Faerie realm He should practically be a member of PETA, and tends to jump before looking over the edge, but that of course is what makes a story good.There are the evil cat killersBrimstone and Chalkhill, There s BluePyrgus s hot younger sister whole is a better spy than the royal guard, there s Fogerty, the crotchety ex bank robber who think aliens are taking over the world, and last but certainly not leastthere is the Purple Emperor himself, who wellhas a very unfortunate moment with an Analog World weapon Faerie Wars is a plethora of the unexpected There is a pissed off demon with a whistle in his head, a lesbian mommy, a Princess who should learn to close the door, flamboyant leaders of a glue empire, and 1 very clumsy assassination plot.It wasNarnia meets Harry Potter meets Lord of The Rings, and I LIKED it Herbie Brennan set us up for a world of endless possibilities and to be perfectly honestI can t wait.Happy reading my fellow Analogers and rememberif you insist on having a journal cataloging all of your evil plansgive everyone fake names.

    I am a bit surprised to be writing this review, since so many readers love it I found it without charm and the characters less than engaging I never felt like I had entered another world, as I m supposed to when the reader enters the faerie world A lot of the magical elements, creatures, etc aren t explained and therefore hard to visualize The only scenes that I could really felt transported to through the writing were the demon world ones.A few of the characters were intriguing, but none are fleshed out enough I esp felt the lack with Henry, one of the two main characters Other than the fact that he s insecure which comes across quite well , I just never felt like I knew him.The end chapters seem rushed and the war anti climactic The traitor is very easy to guess early on.Like a lot of reviewers, I felt the mother s affair and the problems at home didn t belong in this story The didn t add anything and it was tedious to read I understand the author was trying to add background for Henry but it s pointless background and there s too many pages of it His mother is cold and emotionally absent the father is just a stick figure character The sister is a brat who seems to have no interesting characteristics at all.It s as though the writer decided to write a fantasy book but his heart wasn t in it.
